African Participants with the Goethe Institute:
With help from the Goethe Institute in Johannesburg I was able to invite 8 participants from the continent, many of whom I had encountered in my PhD field research and was very keen to introduce them to our audiences.
Jepchumba of African Digital Art
Chief Nyamweya of Kenya Noir & Tsunami Studio’s in Nairobi
Duncan Onyango of Planet Rackus in Nairobi
Oluseye Soyode-Johnson of Maliyo Games in Lagos
Ahmed Abdel Samea of Amidos Games in Cairo

Unfortunately due to visa constraints and other complications John Biretwa of Boda Pay in Kampala and game developer Abiola Demola from Nigeria could not join us.
